Two Notes from the Executive Pastor

Danberry Teacher Needed!

Brookwood leads a Bible Study at Danberry every second and fourth Wednesday at 10am. We need an additional teacher for the fall who would teach once a month. We will alternate and teach through one of Paul's Epistles, taking approximately half a chapter each time.
